“You have to be…what…”

by dimensionaltales

This week has been extremely trying for me – on both fronts. It feels like I’m stretching myself out too thin with so many responsibilities and I’m losing my mind. What’s worse? I know I can’t really remove any of them because, well, they’re MY responsibilities. Truth be told, I don’t want to since one really compliments the other; stuck between a rock and a hard place, right? Ha ha ha.

So, for starters, most of my headache is coming from my new job as a promoter. I thought it was going to be an easy transition being a former Oculus Brand Ambassador. Unfortunately, I was wrong and now I’m working twice as hard while playing catch up and it’s siphoning into my other projects. So, again, I’m playing catching up with everything AND wearing myself thin because of it.

Here’s the thing, though, I can’t complain about it as much as I like because of two things: my sexual orientation and my African American heritage. From a very early age, I’ve always been taught that no one is going to be sympathetic towards someone of my upbringing. To put it simply (and in the words of Eli Pope from Scandal): “You have to be twice as good as them to get half of what they have.” I don’t get the real luxury of dwelling on my woes because I already have people/grievers doing that for me.

That is why I’m going to do what I always do: Swallow my pain, refocus my core and start fresh in the morning. The faster I complete my homework/tasks for my job, the faster I can create more time for myself and my book series. It’s in a matter of time management.

Now, I have to start my day with homework I need to complete in regards to my job. Please, don’t forget to follow me on my social media platforms (Twitter, Instagram, and Goodreads) which are on the right side of my web page. Also, I do love hearing suggestions of what books to read outside of my norm (Science fiction and fantasy) as I am a part of the Goodreads’ reading challenge for 2018.
